. >> peggy fox, thank you. >>> speaking of happy crowds, let's take a live look back in chicago where they are waiting for president barack obama to accept four more years as president of the united states. virginia, florida still too close to call. but he has the electoral votes. he needs 274 to mitt romney's 243. both with 49%. only several hundred thousand votes now separating the president from mitt romney in the popular vote. he's clearly won the electoral vote and there's so much anticipation in chicago for his acceptance speech. >> the loser will come out and give the concession speech first. so, i'm sure president obama is awaiting mitt romney to accept forward and acknowledge he has been defeated and then president obama comes forward and says hopefully in a gracious way, that he has won. we are looking live at the stage in boston, as a matter of fact, where the crowd, a lot more subdued as you might expect is awaiting mitt romney to step forward and at some point i suspect soon, we will hear from the former governor of massachusetts who as we said is in boston. he will come

. it was as if he, like so many people have been watching conservative media, fox news, rush limbaugh, peggy newman, you look at other people who have said it would be romney in a landslide, they had an alternative reality that they were watching. i think karl may have bought into that. and at the moment when it was clear that it was all falling apart, and that he had taken millions of dollars from several billionaires, he was in denial. >> the last part of what you said, he had taken millions from several billionaires, do you think that helped encourage hi denial when he realized all this money he had raised and they were losing it all? >> absolutely. he has been cultivating some of these people for 15 or 20 years, some of whom are involved as biggest funders of the cross roads pacs. the dark money, those people that have given him money have been given him money for a long time. a homebuilder named bob perry, a dallas financier, boone pickens, these were the funders of the swiftboat veterans against john kerry. they've been with him a long time. he clearly promised them something in the 2012 race

wing media and all these people woke up shocked when mitt romney lost because they watched fox news, read peggy noonan and watch rush limbaugh. the question, now there's this grappling within the conservative movement, maybe the media is doing more harm than good. have you been reading media matters for the last eight years? my point is people like peggy noonan, i am convinced and rush limbaugh and others, they're just paid to be wrong. this was a decision they made weeks up to the campaign, they were paid to be wrong and tell conservatives their guy was going to win when most people knew he wasn't. >> stephanie: it's like you keep your people that make you feel better i'll keep my people that are right. people like eric boehlert and nate silver. you were very helpful a.k.a., a landslide. 332-206. say it with us, landslide. you also had some great tweets. romney lost because they didn't have enough money. you said when they call florida for obama i'm going to raise a toast to al gore. >> that made me feel good, you know to think that he won it by what was it 73, 76,000 votes. >> ste
